Musing Mondays—June 13, 2011

Musing MondaysThis week’s musing asks

What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?

I devoured [amazon_link id=”1565125606″ target=”_blank” ]Water for Elephants[/amazon_link] by Sara Gruen (review) in the space of a day, but I can’t remember how late I stayed up reading to finish it. I do remember clearly staying up really late because I was hooked on [amazon_link id=”0385737637″ target=”_blank” ]Revolution[/amazon_link] by Jennifer Donnelly (review). It’s not something I have done in a while; I have had a run of four-star and lower books. It’s usually the five-star books that keep me up at night. I will say that [amazon_link id=”1439191697″ target=”_blank” ]The Kitchen Daughter[/amazon_link] by Jael McHenry is running on five stars right now, as is [amazon_link id=”1401302025″ target=”_blank” ]The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth: Popularity, Quirk Theory, and Why Outsiders Thrive After High School[/amazon_link] by Alexandra Robbins. I think some of the books that have kept me up most have been the [amazon_link id=”0545162076″ target=”_blank” ]Harry Potter[/amazon_link] series and the [amazon_link id=”0545265355″ target=”_blank” ]Hunger Games[/amazon_link] series. I have yet to read books to match those two series for making it impossible for me stop turning pages.

  1. I devoured Water for Elephants too, as well as The Hunger Games books. Right now I am in the midst of yet another book that has me up later than usual at night, called The Twisted Thread. I only have a bit left, so I plan on reading the rest momentarily.

    As for the Alexandra Robbins book, I have not heard of it, but I think she wrote the book about sororities. If so, I will have to check out the one you mentioned, as I loved Pledged!

  2. The last one that kept me up, because I just HAD to know, was 'The Far Pavilions' by M M Kaye, believe it or not. Don't read the scene of the rescue before bedtime!

    Glad to hear about the Kitchen Wife…on my ever-growing TBR pile!
